Tips for measuring your hat size
To measure your head, take a string or measuring tape. Start about 1/8" above your ears and across your mid forehead- basically, trace where you want to wear your hat.
Don't the string/ tape too tight, but make it snug. If you're using a string, pull out a ruler to get the total length or note the value on the measuring tape.
About De La Fuente
When we asked Kara Fuentes about the inspiration behind DLF, her story involves solo travels around the world, from Morrocco to Vietnam and beyond, before discovering her passion for jewelry and millinery in Mexico.
As Kara says, "I adore history and the old world elegance, and reflect that love into most of my designs and styles."
Meeting a milliner in Oaxaca, she started learning to design and press hats. Fast forward to present day, DLF's collection of jewelry and hats capture a nostalgic romance that reminds us of slow days exploring winding streets, art, cafes and food, soaking up beauty and inspiration that travel so effortlessly delivers.
